Everything isn’t always clear. But sometimes, even in the darkest night, we end up seeing or touching something. But we must pass through the darkness. That is the path we are shown, even if we don’t reach it together. From the lights of a Larrieu brothers screening in Cannes (To Paint or Make Love, we quickly understood that this title is the subtitle of our fable) to the more austere theatrical performance of a Pavese play put on by the Straubs in Italy, it is a road. A humble but declared course, it is that of work. From hotel to hotel. From frame to frame. It is also that of taste, art, and its diversity. But there are still other roads. That of love that no longer answers except automatically on the answering machine. That of a landscape that transforms into an island through the magic of a ferry’s portholes blurred by the rain. Traveling, my beautiful care. Rolling from one point to another, never ceasing to remember the road once traveled. Going backward, a little, just a bit, in order to forge ahead, that is the challenge of mixing reality with his figurative images, of getting tangled up in the net of colorless emotions.
